The cast is outstanding: There is a money-hustling trombone player (Wendell Pierce). There is a restaurateur (Kim Dickens) trying to keep her business afloat with few supplies and fewer employees. There is a bitter saloon owner (Khandi Alexander) searching for her missing brother and fighting off the charms of her two-timing ex-hubby (the trombone player). There is a disc jockey (Steve Zahn, Sahara), actively pissing off everyone (including our restaurateur. There’s an obsessive senior (Clarke Peters) who refuses to give up his dream of leading a parade Trewe in the city’s first post-disaster Mardis Gras. Finally, there is a community activist (John Goodman) who rails against the government, the Army Corps of Engineers and FEMA to anyone who will listen. There is a lot more this is the tip of the iceberg It is an intelligent show it has a sense of reality to it of course and it is moving along just fine beside being well acted, after all this is real-life drama. So you got the character, music , food and some blah! blah! and you have a dam good show.
